We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Good integration capabilities and extensibility.""Performance and goal management are good to have, based on certain client requirements where the user base isn't too large, but the most workable domain of Taleo is the recruiting module.""The solution is stable and reliable.""The solution offers good benefits for administrators."

More Oracle Taleo Pros →

"It's very user-friendly.""SAP SuccessFactors, in my opinion, is the best cloud-based HR solution tool for any size business.""Provides an open architecture and an open platform so it can coexist with other systems.""The most valuable feature of SAP SuccessFactors is that it is a full suite of applications to enable your employees. Additionally, it has good integration with S4 HANA. Our payroll solution is from SAP and the integration becomes much easier when using SAP SuccessFactors.""The UX in SAP SuccessFactors is good.""The most valuable feature is the onboarding module, which enables candidates to fill in their details online and smoothly transitions data from the recruitment module into the SAP database.""What I like most about SAP SuccessFactors are its recruiting and compensation features.""SuccessFactors' most valuable feature is performance management."

Cons
"It's hard to share access with other people right now. If you try it will not work. They should do something that improves the ability to share everything.""In terms of Oracle Taleo as a product, there are a lot of things which can be developed; most feedback which I have heard from customers is about the dashboard and the home page, both of which are quite basic.""Lacks some systems that we need.""There are always going to be little caveats here and there that you might not have known about as far as changes are concerned, however, it's not business-oriented to the point where the business shuts down."

More Oracle Taleo Cons →

"SAP should also look into easily integrating with other applications or other tools. Technology has changed now, and it should be easier for any application to integrate with other apps. There needs to be more flexibility.""The complete integration process between SuccessFactors modules is not at the level that all customers expect when it comes to complete HR user experience from all angles.""The integration between the recruitment module and employee central is a big problem.""The data management part can be improved in terms of how you can manage data from the HR admin's or HR team's perspective. It has some limitations in the reporting part in terms of how you can update the data and fetch the data. SAP HCM comparatively has a lot of capabilities in terms of backup loads, data management, data changes, etc. You can do these things easily, which is not the case with SAP SuccessFactors. Data management should be simplified in SAP SuccessFactors in terms of accessing the data, reporting, and then manipulating the data.""SuccessFactors could be improved by making it usable on mobile and making its features less rigid.""The pricing of SAP is quite high.""They should be more user friendly and give us more tools to make it more flexible.""The price could be lower."
